Being dedicated by NASA for US astronauts, Nugevity supplements are produced with ultra high standard and breakthrough technologies that make it one of a kind nutrition products on Earth.  

Our Story 

It all began with a simple idea:

Getting the right nutrition shouldn’t be rocket science.

Nugevity has its roots as a leading provider of nutraceutical technologies, services and solutions to the biomedical sector. We partner with healthcare professionals, research institutions and government agencies to advance discovery and facilitate patient access to ethical dietary supplements, as part of an integrative care model.

Over the past decade, our scientists have worked with NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston to develop nutritional technologies, and research their potential to enhance health. Under the auspice of a Space Act Agreement, these co-developed systems have been flown aboard both Space Shuttle, and International Space Station missions.

Nugevity was founded to share these discoveries and make them available to clinicians and patients around the world. We research the human body at its extremes - in the toughest of environments. And we apply those mission-critical insights to improve your life, your athletic performance, your health. That’s the difference between making supplements, and making a difference.

Nugevity is also the research and development partner to top doctors, professional and Olympic athletes and their coaches; military and mission-critical organizations. We provide unparalleled dietary support for those with the highest standards: people who push their bodies to the limit and demand the most from their lives in pursuit of their best selves and dreams. Come and join us on this journey to optimal health.

Our mission

Nugevity’s mission is to enhance, prolong and protect human performance and quality of life, naturally.

We believe that wholesome nutrition is best obtained from a balanced diet, and that humans should strive to have access to affordable, natural foods. 

But we also recognize that staying healthy has become increasingly hard in this modern world, and that most people face difficult odds when trying to eat right. Factory farming, fast foods, and a complicated web of regulations have turned the most basic of human needs into an unsurmountable challenge. 

NUGEVITY's goal is to cut through the noise; sort through the science; and provide ethical dietary solutions of unquestionable quality, that you can readily incorporate into your routine. 

But nutrition is only a piece of the bigger puzzle. We don’t believe in panaceas or "miracle cures.” That’s why Nugevity's works with research institutions to advance our understanding of human health through the various aspects of integrative care: exercise, sleep, stress reduction, etc. And that’s why our team actively participates in promoting education through CE lectures and conferences around the world.
